Trauma Centers in the Mississippi Trauma System care for a variety of injured patients. These patients are provided immediate resuscitation and stabilization, and definitive acute care. The Trauma Centers along with the Trauma Regions are dedicated to trauma care, teaching and injury prevention in an effort to decrease death and disabilities.

There are rules and regulations mandated by the Mississippi State Department of Health, Bureau of Acute Care Systems with which compliance is necessary to be a designated Trauma Center. These rules and regulations are examined at a frequent basis as to their compliance.

Trauma patients are cared for at these Trauma Centers regardless of that patient’s financial status. The multi-disciplinary approach follows the patient throughout the continuum of care from pre-hospital to rehabilitation.

Trauma Centers work to continually improve critical elements of trauma care. This is done by the performance improvement process. The Trauma Centers are required to maintain a Trauma Registry with up-to-date information. This registry provides assistance in the performance improvement process to the centers.
